A subdomain is the part of the web address that's before a domain name and you have most likely seen a lot of subdomains while exploring the Internet. As an example, many sites such as Wikipedia have versions in different languages using subdomains - en.wikipedia.org, de.wikipedia.org and so forth. The advantage of using a subdomain is that it can have an independent site and its own records, so you can even host it on another server. The practical use is that you can have a supplementary website, like an e-learning portal for college students as well as the primary school website. If you use subdomains as opposed to subfolders, it'll be much easier to perform maintenance or to upgrade a specific website, not mentioning that it will be more secure to have the websites separate from one another.
Subdomains in Cloud Hosting
Every single cloud hosting package we offer will allow you to create hundreds of subdomains with no more than a few mouse clicks inside your web hosting CP. They're going to be listed in the area in which you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so that you're able to effortlessly keep an eye on them all. Furthermore, you can access many functions for any one of the subdomains through right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or change their DNS records, access the website files, and much more. While creating a new subdomain, you're also going to have numerous options that you can select from - determine the default access folder, create unique error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or decide if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The number of subdomains you will have is entirely up to you as we haven't restricted this feature for any of our packages.
Subdomains in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our Linux semi-dedicated plans haven't got a set limit for the number of subdomains that you can create. Adding a new subdomain within the account takes just a few mouse clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and throughout the process you can select the folder the subdomain is going to access if it is going to be different from the default one, set up tailor-made error pages, enable FrontPage Extensions if you need them or create a dedicated IP address instead of the shared server one in case you have added such an upgrade to your semi-dedicated account. After the subdomain is created, you'll be able to access logs and visitor stats or you can quickly jump to the site files for it within the File Manager area via quick access buttons. All subdomains you have in the account will be conveniently listed under their root domain, so you're going to be able to find and manage any of them with ease.
